Glitch in the System series

by Selene dePackh 

The authoritarian dregs of collapsing society require absolute compliance. Noncompliance is deadly.

One neuroqueer teenager, betrayed by the juvenile justice system, fights a desperate struggle to survive.  Against all odds, the rebellious sexworker retains her humanity with the support of another prisoner.

See author Selene dePackh’s searing dystopian saga through the eyes of her fiercely female-genderqueer narrator, and learn what it is to be autistic in the new world order.

Selene dePackh creates innovative story lines that expand the science fiction genre of cyberpunk into an entirely new subcategory which she calls Neuropunk, which draws on her own autism to immerse the reader in a firsthand experience of institutional bias.
